Happy St Andrew's Day to our Scottish readers. Mark has a song for the season from a favorite wee Scots lassie.
In case you missed it, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
He started the week with some further thoughts on Interstellar and its strangely familiar bad guy.
~On Monday, Mark looked at Obama's contempt for the conventions - at home and abroad.
~On Tuesday, Steyn found himself in the DC Court of Appeals as an amicus curiae in the latest interminable stage of Michael E Mann vs Free Speech. Needless to say, Doctor Fraudpants himself was a no-show, as Mark discussed in our most-read post of the week: Where Steyn Goes, No Mann Goes. We thank all readers who've continued to support Mark's pushback against Mann by picking up a SteynOnline gift certificate or a book or CD from the Steyn store for their loved ones this holiday season.
~On Wednesday, Mark checked in with Toronto's Number One morning man John Oakley to discuss the reaction to the Ferguson grand jury decision, and some current celebrity scandals.
~On Black Friday, Mark missed out on the must-get Christmas bargains because he was guest-hosting The Rush Limbaugh Show. The Grand Junction, Colorado cops chimed in with a chorus of "Yes, you'll have no banana".
At the weekend, to mark the passing of P D James, Steyn considered the movie version of her great novel The Children Of Men.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
If you're in the New York/New England area and you've never seen Steyn live, he'll be in Hartford, Connecticut on Monday December 8th for a special evening hosted by the Mark Twain House in which he'll be interviewed by Scott Simon. It's a great honor for Mark, and it should be a fun night. For more info and to reserve tickets, click here.
As for Mark's latest hit, The [Un]documented Mark Steyn continues to keep somewhat improbable company with Lena Dunham, Russell Brand and Tina Fey on the New York Times bestseller charts. It's available in America from Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Books-A-Million, not to mention Costco, and from Indigo-Chapters, Amazon and McNally-Robinson in Canada. Or, for instant gratification, get it in eBook - in Kindle, Kobo, Nook and iBooks.
